[TF] Netflix Says It’s ‘Killing’ BitTorrent Traffic - Page 9

post #81 of 88
Yes, Netflix is combating torrents with crappy C-level movies, cartoons, and anime.

Seriously, they've got the right attitude, but their selection is pretty awful. If I didn't get a year for free, there is no way I'd pay monthly for the crap they offer.

A PC and a iPad internet browsing alongside the Netflix app running on my Wii gave me no issues.

Yeah as long as you stay in standard def you don't need that much of a Internet connection to run it...and it won't take more than a nibble out of any data cap you might have provided you have at least 100GB a month.

The only things on there worth watching are the standard definition stuff anyway in my opinion...basically kid cartoons and some foreign movies that only got put on DVD...for the most part any anime you see on Netflix can be found on free Hulu though. The "High Definition" isn't really all that high definition anyway. If you want HD just get the Blueray in the mail.

No that is called waiting for your TV show season end and going out and buying the actual media.....
